A World Malaria Map: Plasmodium falciparum Endemicity in 2007

Figure 3

The Spatial Distribution of P. falciparum Malaria Endemicity

The data are the model-based geostatistical point estimates of the annual mean PfPR2−10 for 2007 within the stable spatial limits of P. falciparum malaria transmission, displayed as a continuum of yellow to red from 0%–100% (see map legend). The rest of the land area was defined as unstable risk (medium grey areas, where PfAPI < 0.1 per 1,000 pa) or no risk (light grey, where PfAPI = 0 per 1,000 pa) [1719].
